HEALTH TECH: Rebooting Society’s Software, Hardware and Mindset

I am back, maybe? Here is a book I recommend highly. See my review.

HEALTH TECH: Rebooting Society’s Software, Hardware and Mindset

Dr Trond Undheim’s latest book, Heath Tech, is an eye-opening reading voyage in how global health care may change over the next few decades. Trond begins with an overview of the history and evolution of the Public Health Movement. The following nine chapters discuss digitalisation, healthcare disruption, challenges, natural wellness, opportunity windows, reductions in healthcare barriers, and why changes are necessary.

As a physician and medical researcher, my favourites were Chapter 7: Natural Wellness and Chapter 8: How to Come to Grips with Anti-Vaxxers without Becoming One.

The Key Takeaways and Reflections at the end of each chapter help contemplate the chapter contents and start thinking ahead.

I would have liked to have seen chapters discussing: [1] inculcating self-responsibility in humans (a significant issue in medical care) and [2] how a reboot in global healthcare will solve our primary problem—overpopulation and endemic poverty.

The book is well-researched. Trond’s writing style flows effortlessly and is comprehensible to readers having a secondary school education. It is a worthwhile read for everyone interested in assuming personal responsibility for their health and finances. After all, being forewarned is being forearmed.

I appreciate the opportunity to review Trond’s new publication. Rating: 4.8/5.0
